DUBLIN – Ireland beat France in Six Nations International Rugby tournament match at Lansdowne Road on Saturday.

The fly-half kicked 11 points in what was his first match since he suffered a calf strain playing for Irish province Leinster against French club Castres five weeks ago.

Ireland’s other scores came via scrum-half Conor Murray’s first-half try and a Paddy Jackson penalty, with France fly-half Camille Lopez kicking all of the visitors’ points with three penalties.
